Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Smi2les (nonDEAD)

I have been known to study a little Buddhism in my past. I have a strong belief that there's so much about this world that I am completely oblivious to, that how could I possibly not avail myself to all ideas. That being said, there's a hell of a lot of hokum out there as well.

Meanwhile, I have to say that I associate more to my natural Judaism than any other particular dogma.

I don't really have too much tolerance for people who spend a lot of energy judging... There I go, judging again...

Judaism never been my cup of tea , nor Christianism , because these are mostly dogmas made by men but the symbolism in various branches of Bouddhism express ideas beyond religionswhich like nationalisms never reached beyond local obstinated opinions ,men's opinions . Had to grow up in a catholic country which luckily als ad a revolutions to free the lands of obnoxious priests ! Evolution is a personnal trip ,The Grateful Dead was a nice stopover ,but all things considered more like saterdays nights fevers than a ship for eternity because deadheads are also only human people too scattered to want eternity together !It was fun ,yes but fun is not enough when hardtimes come by !That was a lesson I had to understand about deadheads and when nobody cared then i had to survive nonetheless as Life wanted it so ,Staggerleib .

Skies-
I have to say that though it may be a language barrier, I don't really understand at all what you're trying to say.

I feel that religion is so personal a thing that the only objection I have to it has to do with the tendencies for people to use it as a shield or umbrella for otherwise oppressive behavior.

That's why the bouddha once said : we just can't please everybody , so let's not worry about it !
